The exhibition Phantom Bodies features haunting photographs by Tanya Marcuse evoking absent bodies in the U.S., England, Florence, and Vienna.
The exhibition “Phantom Bodies” brings together “Undergarments
and Armor” (2002-2004) and “Wax Bodies” (2006-2008), two
projects in which Tanya Marcuse creates haunting photographs evoking
absent bodies. For “Undergarments and Armor,” Ms. Marcuse traveled
to archives and museums in the United States and England. For “Wax
Bodies,” she photographed the 18th-century Italian anatomical models
in two obscure museum collections, La Specola in Florence and the
Josephinum in Vienna.
